When should I expect to see the reimbursements on my check?
All reimbursements will be made within one of the first two paychecks directly following the end of the month, depending on the pay period end date, for membership fees. Fitness classes will be reimbursed as soon as administratively possible, once completed cards are received.
Is the fitness reimbursement taxable?
Yes. The applicable federal, state and local taxes will be withheld from your paycheck when the reimbursement is received.
My spouse and I are both Grande Associates; will we both be eligible for the full amount of the fitness reimbursements?
As Grande Associates, if you each have an individual membership or purchase fitness classes, you will each be reimbursed 50% of the membership fees up to $400/year. However, if you and your spouse are on a joint membership together as either a couple or family, you will only be reimbursed once.
Can I get reimbursed for past fees?
There are no retroactive reimbursements; reimbursement is contingent on the submission of your monthly Tracking Cards.
How do I remain in the Fitness Reimbursement Program?
To remain in the program you must resubmit the Fitness Reimbursement Form by January 31 each year. You must also continue to submit the monthly tracking sheets before reimbursements will be made.
What if I am a current member to a fitness center prior to the new year?
You must still complete and return a Fitness Reimbursement Form by January 31 with a copy of your current membership agreement, if available. If you sign up for a gym membership mid year you have 30 days from the time you sign up to submit your fitness reimbursement form and a copy of your membership agreement to be eligible for the reimbursement.
What if my gym membership changes?
If your gym membership changes before the plan year end, submit a new Fitness Reimbursement Form for your new fitness center within 10 days of joining.
